The East Asian Special Collection (EASC) is a foreign language collection consisting of over 1000 titles in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Items are sorted into their respective language and cultural groups.

The project to revitalize our East Asian language holdings, which included implementing the digital organization and automated circulation system, was established in 2013. Please note that this collection is separate from the rest of the Tri-University Group of Libraries (TUG) system.

All books will include a coloured dot on the their spine indicating to which area they belong.
